Looks like the Mars Company has some illegal advertising going up around town, whether they know it or not. The Public Ad Campaign spotted these ads on University Place in an otherwise empty storefront, noting that "as the economic crisis leaves storefronts abandoned and landlords without income" some unique ad spaces are popping up. "These locations are treated by the Department of buildings the same way billboards are treated and thus require permits. If permits are not obtained the signage is considered illegal and is subject to the same fines and violations associated will illegal billboards." And guess what, this Snickers building wrap has no permits and is reportedly "larger than most billboards even in Times Square." So would Poster Boy be for or against this?
